Dynamic changes in processing requirements, increased levels of compliance reporting, Homeland Security requirements, and the pressure to optimize operating budgets through controlled energy and manpower costs are but a few of the challenges faced by water and wastewater companies throughout the globe. Such challenges require an increasing level of capability from the supporting automation and information technology. IntelliMAX real-Time Data Management Platforms offers flexible and proven capabilities for advanced water applications that deliver high performance enabling a sustainable advantage.

Solutions

Operator Level/ Centralized HMI

Sensys provides state of the art customized high resolution representation of plant floor and processes to ensure visibility and traceability of the entire operations in a plant and enabling the management to perform monitoring and control on real-time basis. We have expertise in providing customized dashboards for different operations and processes in water and wastewater covering areas such as transmission, distribution, and treatment for both water as well as wastewater. IntelliMax provides visibility and control of processes such Coagulation and Flocculation, Sedimentation, Filtration, Disinfection etc. for Water Treatment and Preliminary, Primary, Secondary Treatment, Digestion etc. for Wastewater Treatment. This enables users to seamlessly control and monitor relevant parameters via standard dashboards designed specifically for each. We offer operator level console as well as act as a centralized platform in case of multiple facilities thus catering to entire needs of the company.

Plant Information Management System

Sensys offers state of the art Plant Information Management System with advanced historian capabilities that allows data collection, data storage, data archiving and instant data retrieval upon user request. IntelliMAX enables a large number of parameters and KPIs to be calculated and controlled relevant to both water and wastewater. It facilitates clients to centralize data from various data sources and provides a central platform to access historical data. User can perform advanced trending and charting analysis on critical parameters/KPIs such as Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Turbidity, Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Production, Sewer Overflow Rate, Distribution system water loss, Wastewater treatment effectiveness rate, Operations and Maintenance Cost Ratios etc. This data can be used to perform in-depth analysis and on both processes and operations and also generate periodic as well as on demand reports to get better insights and improve productivity and efficiency.

Condition Based Maintenance

Condition based maintenance is a maintenance strategy used to improve the effectiveness of maintenance programs and reduce the life cycle costs of assets. Water and wastewater plants comprise assets such as boilers, pumps, motors, heat exchangers, digester, generators etc. for its operations. IntelliMAX caters to Condition based maintenance utilizing the real-time data associated with these asset such as running hours, temperature, pressure, vibration, speed, flow-rate, voltage, current, stress, etc. and analyzing these to determine the state of assets. These parameters are regularly monitored on real-time basis and the values of the mentioned parameters are compared against their set points to see deviations. Trends can be plotted to analyze the behavior and thus predict the maintenance. This improves the life cycle of assets of assets and cut down on unnecessary costs that are incurred.

Energy Management 

Rising energy costs have become a critical consideration for industries to ensure uninterrupted and profitable operations. Sensys provides Water and Wastewater Industry with specific Energy dashboards in order to enable users to take necessary measures to optimize energy. IntellIMAX EMI provides visibility to system by providing real-time monitoring and control of energy parameters for both supply and demand. It has the capability to provide in-depth analysis via advanced trending, charting and reporting on Energy Consumption by source be it Water, Gas, Steam or Electricity. By having an accurate data about energy consumption, user can better estimate patterns and perform in-depth analysis to optimize the supply and demand for energy. We offer load balancing and optimization taking into account the demand in real-time. This results in secure and reliable energy availability, improved energy efficiency and better profitability.

Integration with other Applications

The power of real-time data is fully harnessed when it is utilized not only at plant floor but also with other manufacturing and business applications. IntelliMAX EMI has the capability to integrate the plant floor data with other manufacturing and business applications such as SAP, Maximo, LIMS, CMMS, and GIS etc. This facilitates information sharing across various business functions thus improving coordination and ensuring faster decision making. In addition, condition based maintenance of assets such as pumps, compressors, boilers etc. are an important requirement in Water and Wastewater industry. IntelliMAX has the capability to provide Automatic receipt of Manufacturing Orders and Recipes for execution from Central Office. IntelliMAX EMI (being SAP and Maximo certified) completely addresses the needs of Plant Floor – ERP integration.

Distributed Intelligence

The Water and Wastewater industry is characterized by multiple geographically dispersed facilities owing to its wide scale of operations and territory to be catered. Sensys caters to this aspect through its Distributed Intelligence solution by providing an open, secure and scalable centralized platform ensuring lossless integration and hence reliability. IntelliMAX has the capability to act as a local server at each individual site providing real-time monitoring and control at plant level and at the same time to act as a central server placed at head office providing complete real-time information of all the facilities at one location. It also has the ability to integrate with the business applications such as SAP, Oracle etc. thus fully utilizing the potential of real-time data using it effectively to take timely decisions.
